Over deze vacature


Productivity Monitoring (ProdMon) is an ASML application that collects a number of processing statistics in our customer factories. These factories are large semiconductor manufacturing ‘fabs’ with an inventory of equipment with a value of hundreds of millions of Euros.

The statistics are related to ASML’s wafer processing equipment (scanners) and help us to do productivity based accounting. ProdMon is the basis for a significant revenue stream and provides reporting that is trusted by both ASML and its customers.

The development of ProdMon is outsourced to an external company. The application is written in Java.

ProdMon runs on ASML’s own server in the customer fab. We will need to migrate the application to a new platform that is currently under development. The new platform is set up with many typical cloud based solutions, which are provided with an ASML specific API.

We are in need for a person who can combine PO skills, software architecture skills and supplier management skills. This is a unique role that allows you to expand your experience within one domain or to multiple domains.
